Back To O’Betty’s!
Posted by cmh gourmand on August 23, 2009
In a previous installment, our heroes Hungry Woolf, Taco Drew and CMH Gourmand were heading to Athens after The Inn at Cedar Falls, Ash Cave and Etta’s Lunchbox. Our mission: to consume a late lunch at Casa Nueva. Casa was closed for the week. While we weighed our options we walked across Court Street to O’Betty’s. I was hoping to catch co-owner Bob Satmary at the establishment to fill him in on Dirty Franks and the other events of the summer.
In case you did not know, O’Betty’s is the best Hot Dog place in Ohio and probably the best hot dog purveyor in the history of hot dogs. I had only intended to drop in for a few minutes but the aroma of hot dogs searing and fries frying was enough for us to defer our plans for a quick snack.
Life is Athens is usually slow in the summer. This summer was not slow for O’Bettys, they have been super busy the entire season and had their busiest day ever in July (just wait until the students get back).
O’Bettys also added a website this summer www.obettys.com
Equally exciting, as I was walking out the door I saw the sign for the annual Hot Dog Derby! This includes a hot dog eating contest. Yep – the light went off in my head and I made plans to be there. Details in the next post.
